Exclusive: Pundit urges Man United to sign Wilfred Ndidi if Paul Pogba seals exit

Steve Howey reckons Manchester United should target Wilfred Ndidi if Paul Pogba leaves Old Trafford before the transfer window slams shut.

Pogba, who is enjoying his second spell with the Red Devils after sealing a then-world record transfer from Juventus five years ago, has been heavily linked with exiting the club throughout the summer.

French giants Paris Saint-Germain have been interested in prising Pogba away from Old Trafford, with the midfielder’s agent Mino Raiola claiming last December that a move is needed.

Would Ndidi be the perfect Pogba replacement?

No

According to French media outlet Le 10 Sport, Raiola has even offered Pogba to United’s arch-rivals Liverpool.

Pogba has entered the final 12 months of his £290,000-per-week contract and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are facing up to the prospect of seeing the France international depart for free next summer.

The 28-year-old has already rejected a new deal at United, according to Canal Supporters, with the report suggesting Pogba wants a move to PSG.

From which academy did Manchester United recruit Paul Pogba?

Howey believes the Red Devils should sign Ndidi, who has made 146 PL appearances and won the FA Cup since joining Leicester City from Genk in 2017, if Pogba seeks pastures new.

Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, former Leicester defender Howey said: “For me, Ndidi would fit the bill if Pogba goes. I think you would have less controversy as well.”
